Great Tension!!! Ibe Kachikwu Forced To Expose President Muhammadu Buhari, Gets Saved By Top APC Senator

The Chairman of the Senate Committee on Petroleum Resources (Downstream), Kabiru Marafa, on Thursday, protected the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Ibe Kachikwu, from answering a question on his relationship with President Muhammadu Buhari, as Petroleum Minister.

Senator Isa Misau (APC Bauchi) had asked Kachikwu if he had unfettered access to the President.

He specifically demanded the Minister to state whether he has direct access to the President, or whether his communication is intermediated by a third party, as widely suspected.

However, Marafa who moderated the meeting did not allow Kachikwu answer the question, saying it was ‘personal’ and not part of the issue on the discussion.

Kachikwu complied by not making any reference to the issue in his responses.

He however, gave a hint of difficulty in seeing the President.

“We just started a Committee meeting which we started yesterday. We will go back when we leave here to go and finalise. It is so urgent, so much that within the next one week, we should be getting something to the tip Executives approval, including the outstanding arrears issue that has bedeviled the industry. We will bring up memos and I am sure Mr. President, this is as important to him as anything on his table right now, and I believe we will be able to see him and get this done quickly.”

“I know that we have done a lot. The peripheral areas are still suffering a little bit, but not as bad as it was. It is important for Nigerians that I am telling them the truth, I swore an oath. The reality is that we are doing the very best we can. We are going to get this away as soon as possible.”
